High speed police chase through downtown Trail

A high speed police chase through Trail early Wednesday morning leads to stolen truck, driver up on multiple charges.

A 21-year old Vernon man was arrested following an early morning police chase through downtown Trail.

Sheldon Donald Veness is listed as the driver of a pickup truck, that failed to stop for the Trail RCMP during the early morning hours Wednesday. Veness fled the scene at a high rate of speed with two females and one male occupant also in the vehicle.

Police apprehended the pickup at Highway 22 and Bingay Road (near Teck Trail Operations) when the driver failed to negotiate the corner and struck a barricade.

Veness and the three passengers, one female and one male from Trail and one female from Vernon, were arrested at the scene of the accident.

The 2011 white GMC Sierra pickup was stolen in Kamloops two days earlier.

Veness has been charged with possession of stolen property over $5000, dangerous operation of a motor vehicle, flight from police, possession of a controlled substance, driving while prohibited, two counts of breach of an undertaking and three counts of possession of stolen property related to break and enters in Kamloops, Kelowna and Vernon.

He has been remanded to provincial court in Rossland on March 5 and is currently before the Vernon courts on charges of dangerous driving and possession of a controlled substance.

The three occupants, all in their twenties, were released from custody.

Police say the traffic was very light during the time of the incident so no one was injured as a result of the reckless driving or accident.

Additional charges are likely as investigation into numerous break and enters and possession of stolen property continues.
